Panels and presentations will be moderated and presented by a variety of industry leaders including Red Light Management, CID Entertainment, Head Count, Madison House Presents, and AEG Live.
The day long event will feature a variety of panels and discussions focusing on subjects important to the music industry. According to the event website, moderated panels include industry topics like talent buying, artist management, publicity and music festivals.

In 1974, Relix Magazine was launched as a handmade newsletter designed to connect fans that recorded the Grateful Dead. It eventually expanded into a music magazine covering a wide variety of music. The magazine is the second-longest continuously published music magazine in the United States.
Event organizers noted that they hope the Relix Live Music Conference will serve as a resource to bring together “all the pieces and people that help bring a live show to life.”
